Confessions of a Serial Job Hopper

I was checking out the results of Evolv's Q2 2013 Workforce Report and came across an amazing finding; long-term unemployed workers and job hoppers are excellent candidates.  Wow! After years of being told by recruiters that I was perceived as flighty, indecisive, and unreliable because I didn't find a field that I was passionate about until I was 35, it has now been proven that I can be an excellent employee. Coincidentally, I read the report after my decision to write this article, and embrace and own the "job hopper" label.

However, I've read some terrific articles and checked out a friend's website this week, and wanted to give these folks a special shout out.

However, there are times when I feel the disadvantages outweigh the advantages.
